AND THE CAT TALKED BACK AT ME.

I had a dream about a cat last night. A dusty grey fiend that was semi-kitten, semi-adult, very defiant, mouthy and troublesome. I felt upset about the dream when I woke up and was left feeling many emotions, fear being the main one.

The interesting thing about the dream was that the cat could talk. I googled ‘dream interpretations’ immediately and apparently talking animals symbolised superior wisdom & a desire to express something in real life whilst cats represented female eroticism, creativity, independence and a repressed desire for freedom.

The whole dream was based around me thinking there was something wrong with the cat and that it must be carried by me everywhere until I could get to my Father’s house in Greece, where it would be contained and safe. I kept it close to my stomach under my shirt until its fur got damp and matted from perspiration, then I would have to move it around. At some point it would get limp and I would freak out that I’d hurt it- then it would yowl again and I would struggle to regain control of it. The cat was quite mean and resentful of me. It was talking at me the whole time, complaining that I never let it be free and that it was uncomfortable in its current condition. I was very afraid of it escaping. The dream involved much stress as I tried to run about the city finding the cat a safe home. I was so scared to let it go.

I feared it because I could not control it.

It wriggled so much.

My heart beat fast the whole night long.

You can never tell a cat what to do.

Q: Have any of your dreams ever been genuinely symbolic of a situation/ an event going on in your life?

    ive never had a talking animal dream before but i did dream about some of my cats, michelle and ciara. . it was nice to have them in a dream. we’ve had alot of bad luck with cats. last cat got FIV(cat aids) and had to be put down when he lost too much weight. no more cats since then.

    i had a dream where i collapsed and my mother was there. 1 week later i collapsed in my bedroom and my mother was getting ready for work at 6am and heard me hit the floor. i went to hospital in an ambulance and had a horrible 6months after that

    i have sigmund freud’s interpretation of dreams but i havent read it yet, i have lucid dreams all the time and i can know im dreaming and wake up from dreams and sometimes go back to the same dream. sometimes i really hate it because it feels too real. ive had end of the world dreams, and some where i die but death wasnt the end which was nice.

    perhaps the cat is part of you, you are struggling with how the world should perceive you? or maybe u ate too much deep fired brie?

    Lizzy called me a few years back when I was still in Virginia and said she’d had a horrible dream where I was in a terrible car accident and died. I thought nothing of it but three days later driving back to DC a deer plowed into my car and I lost control of the vehicle, which in turn flipped over the guardrail and into the air before dropping 22 feet down into a ravine. h8 prescience.

    But hey, if ‘Guilty’ is any indication you’re able to turn nightmares into totally awesome pop hits so at least these dreams aren’t all bad…

    I quite often dream that i have woken up. But i havent woken up, so my dream is happening but i think that it is real. Makes things pretty scary. When i was wee (again) my dressing-gown used to hang on the door and i would dream that i’d woken up to go to the toilet and the dressing gown used to attack me. I though i was awake so it was pretty scary. Have no idea what it might mean though…
